GIVE gifts of Stock
Gifts of appreciated securities are a smart and simple way to maximize the effectiveness of your charitable giving. If stocks or mutual funds you’ve held for more than a year have increased in value, you may want to consider using these assets — rather than cash — to fund your giving.
Your broker may call our Finance Team at 608.314.8420 to complete the gift.
GIVE via IRA Qualified Charitable Distribution
If you are 70½ years or older you may also be interested in a way to lower the income and taxes from your IRA withdrawals.
Contact your IRA plan administrator to make a gift from your IRA to United Way Blackhawk Region. Your IRA funds may be directly transferred to our organization to continue our important work.

- May satisfy your required minimum distribution (RMD) for the year.
- May reduce your taxable income, even if you do not itemize deductions.
- Make a gift that is not subject to the deduction limits on charitable gifts.
